Energumeno ‎– Extractos Ano 2015 tape

Energumeno is a improv noisegrindpunk trio from Spain, comprising two thirds of Potabilizadora (Javi and Manolo-also owner of R.O.N.F. Records) plus Ale from the inimitably grammatically wrong Mentally Masturbation. Not much to say, if you like your noisecore as incoherent and loud as possible, you'll like it. There's also a nice "one-two-three-four" Gero imitation around the 7th minute and later on track one, so there you go. 2015 tape on R.O.N.F. Records.

Various - Small Doses comp cd

No, this isn't a compilation of the Small Doses label. It's a compilation featuring 100 artists and groups offering tracks of maximum half a minute. It goes without saying that this is going to be a noisecore/grindcore/ harsh noise affair; the artists are too many to mention, but prominent names include Vomir (must have been a challenge to create such a short track), a super fast assault by the unforgettable Rupture, Melanocetus Murrayi, grindcore legends Agathocles, Wadge, Violent Headache, Captain Three Leg and Mesrine, noisecore monuments such as 7 Minutes of Nausea, Nikudorei, and Sete Star Sept, Parlamentarisk Sodomi, Psychotic Sufferance, Gorgonized Dorks, Funeral Mongoloids, Colico, PTAO and Ratten Krieg. 2009 cd on Mortville Records, No Fucking Labels, Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench, Death Agony and Screams and Discos Al Pacino (great name).

Melanocetus Murrayi - Entropy Of The Universe / Megalodon Harsh Tones tape


The latest release of Melanocetus Murrayi finds them experimenting with a more cave-like sound: less relentless chaotic in-yer-face noise, more reverb and bass-heavy, with anguished vocals full with delay. 2016 tape on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench and Autistic Society System Filth-Records.


Melanocetus Murrayi / Chappa'ai - Split Tape

The return of Melanocetus after six years of inactivity finds them with a changed line-up in half, with a heavier, reverb-heavy sound that sounds more spacey. On the other side, there's Chappa'ai, the noise project of members of the amazing Hungarian grindcore band SxOxTxE and they feature one track of monstrous harshnoise/noisecore with heavy electronic noise, bestial tortured screams from the belly of hell and drum smashing. I've seen both Chappa'ai and SxOxTxE live and they are the absolute business, plus they're great people. Give them a chance, they rock. 2015 tape on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench, Autistic Society System Filth-Records, Noise Not War Records, HappyHappyNoiseNoise, and Blastbeat Worship.

Psychotic Sufferance / Melanocetus Murrayi split 7"

One side of Gore Beyond Necropsy noise 'n' roll-styled noisecore by long-running crazy Malaysians Psychotic Sufferance, with great wah solos. On the flip side a chaotic whirlwind of relentless blastbeats, psychedelic bass-and-guitar noise and demonic, possessed screaming by Melanocetus Murrayi, like a mix of Deicide's Glen Benton and the girl from The Exorcist on really bad PCP. 2009 7" on No Fucking Labels, Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench, Grind Block, Alcoholic Desaster and NHDIYSTREC.

Industrial Noise / Melanocetus Murrayi split tape

Industrial Noise is from Brazil, but their name is deceptive as they play cool punky/crusty grindcore, raw and unpolished, as it should be. Melanocetus Murrayi offer a side of some of their weirdest vocals, sustained by insanely fast and unstoppable drum blastbeats and piercing noise. 2009 tape on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench and Abyssal Noise.

Melanocetus Murrayi / Saponification split tape

Melanocetus's side starts with the same Richard Attenborough sample as on their split with PTAO, and goes on with half an hour of fucked up noisecore/harshnoise chaos, while Saponification plays incredibly filthy, murky, fetid, emetic, putrid goregrind with a clicky-sounding decadent drum machine, a muddy maze of oozing fuzz bass and one of the lowest possible vomitous/anal flooding pitch-shifted growls straight from a cesspool, which can only be compared to Mutilated Ear-drum. Classical music for cockroaches and shit eaters. 2009 tape on Splatterfuck Tapes.

PTAO / Melanocetus Murrayi - Noisecore Jam 2008 / At War With Garbage Human Beings split cdr

PTAO is a Czech noisecore band with gruff screams, punky blasts and toxic guitar sounds. The track of Melanocetus Murrayi is one of their best. Starts with a great Richard Attenborough sample from his deep-sea documentaries, and proceeds with a savage noisecore swim in a sea of toxic waste and mutant flora and fauna. 2009 cdr on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench and Abyssal Noise.

Melanocetus Murrayi / Ratten Krieg split cdr

Ratten Krieg play enigmatic lo-fi noisecore with a guy murmuring in what appears like a Slavic language, somewhat similar to 7 Minutes of Nausea. Melano offer another mess of improv noisecore and harshnoise with barbaric screaming, cymbal smashing and amp destroying. 2008 tape on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench.


Vulgar Nausea / Melanocetus Murrayi split cdr

Vulgar Nausea play improvised psychedelic noise metal with a saxophone, while Melanocetus goes once more with thick waves of harsh abyssal noise filth. 2008 cdr on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench.

Noituus / Praia De Vomito / Melanocetus Murrayi - split cdr

Noituus were from Finland and played lo-fi d-beat crust with...well a very Finnish vibe, that is with heavy distorted bass and loud vocals. Praia De Vomito played basement noisecore with deep growls/ harsh screams, almost inaudible guitar and fun sloppy drumming. The half-hour Melanocetus Murrayi track is a harsh noise madness raised on Masonna. 2008 cdr on Prai De Vomit.

Melanocetus Murrayi - Untitled tape

How much Melano can you stand. This one contains seventy-six unforgiving minutes of abyssal garbage noise/noisecore. 2008 self-released tape.


Deche-Charge / Melanocetus Murrayi split tape

Deche-Charge from Quebec present 21 minutes of live improv noisecore that frankly doesn't do much for me. Melanocetus Murrayi on the other hand spew out an incredibly loud harsh noise attack that's too good to be ignored. 2008 tape on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench.
